Oracle Open World - the technologist's fall classic

Well its September and the calendar is charging towards fall. I realized today that another summer had passed as the first rain in months fell here in northern California redwood country. If its fall that means that Oracle Open World is right around the corner and that tens of thousands of technology professionals will soon converge on San Francisco to fill every hotel and every corner of their minds. As in years past, team UPK will be there in force to answer questions, demo and discuss all things UPK.

On Thursday, October 4, from 12:45pm to 1:45pm I along with several of my UPK teammates will be manning the User Productivity Kit Panel - Best Practices to Manage and Deploy Content. This session is an interactive session intended as an opportunity to get your UPK questions answered. To get things started we will answer some questions submitted in advance. If you have any questions or subject areas you’d like addressed during the session, let me know here in the blog and then come to the session and we’ll do our best to answer your questions.

Catching Up with UPK – an update on events and what’s coming in the UPK World!

Oracle Open World

Open World was a smashing success!  This year we had our first ever UPK Track containing over 14 sessions, demo pods, and hands on labs in addition to the multiple customer and partner meetings.  It was great to see familiar faces and meet new UPK users.  The interest level around UPK was phenomenal; our demo pod booth traffic was non-stop with over 300 people stopping by over a 3-day period.  We touched over 1,300 people in the UPK specific sessions and hundreds more that heard about UPK from many of the other product sessions that mentioned the value of UPK!  Thank you to all the attendees and especially to the customers and partners that presented, Phil Wilkinson from Liverpool John Moores University, Nicole Moore from Extendicare, and Carol Griffeth from AZZ Inc.  Partner sessions included great presentations from Synaptis and Intelligo.  There was information shared from everyone, including Product Management and Development, and not one but two special interest groups (SIG) meetings, one for OAUG and a new SIG for Quest.

The UPK Applications demo pods had an iPad giveaway and the lucky winner was Lyla Welday from Smuckers!  We were able to track down Lyla at Open World and deliver the iPad in person!
